it means for the eu debt crisis. what does brussels make of the vote so far? is austerity out? >> there are no official comment yet, but you can rest assured that everyone is watching very closely. brussels has been very concerned and worried about the potential return to power of silvio burlesconi. they have been working very closely together this past year to get in back on its feet. italy, like we have heard before, is a very important player in europe, the third biggest contributor to the euro budget and one-fifth of the rescue aid comes from realm. the concern is that if silvio burlesconi returns to power, that risks plunging the entire eurozone into chaos again. plus, the european project could come to a standstill. one message has been received here in brussels. more than half of the italians voted for the euro-sceptic populist. one of them, they will have to deal with in the next government that will be formed. >> nina, thank you for the update from brussels. the outcome of the italian elections has been weighing heavily on financial markets. our correspondent from fra

by talking about ordinary europeans getting up and reading about the crisis of confidence in the eu, the lack of transparency and lack of democracy in brussels. he said this inevitably engendered notions like fear and dismay and the solution until frustration -- and frustration, so the real question was how to overcome this kind of emotions. as a former east german dissident, he said there is only one way to overcome those kinds of emotions and that is for people to get involved, to overcome indifference and complacency. on an economic front, it was interesting -- he admitted that germany has profited more than any other european country in the last 10 years of. he said other countries have been complaining about that i am quite an angry shape or form. he said the only question was not a german europe but a europeanized germany. people had high hopes that it would sort of reinvigorate the european mission. gauck has considerable rhetorical capabilities, but it was not a great speech, it was a good speech. it was dutiful. there were fireworks. i do not think he captured anyone's imagination to
for the river and an island for the city. >> 1 trillion euros -- that's roughly how much the eu countries lose every year to tax evasion. brussels is not amused, not least because the euro crisis is far from over. now europe is looking for ways to more effectively track down and penalize tax dodgers. in italy, tax collecting is done by the finance police, the guardia de finanza. employees often used dubious methods when chasing down tax defaulters. the tax collectors work on commission. the more people they catch, the better for them. that is putting pressure on ordinary italians, especially small and medium-size companies. >> it was a spectacular protest against italy's new tax laws. the owner of a small beach bar scaled the dome of st. peter's basilica in rome and stayed put for some 24 hours. when he climbed back down, he was greeted by a cheering crowd. [applause] >> i really hope this tax issue is resolved soon and our small businesses as well as the whole economy can pick up again, at least a little. >> the tax measures by italy's technocrat government under the prime minister are anothe
for italy's election. we'll get a check on europe's growth process spengts for the eu forecast. we'll head live to brussels for a live press conference. in other news, boeing is set to unveil a plan to help its troubled dreamliner to take flight today. and we're rolling out the red carpet. we'll head to tinsel town to the biggest night in hollywood. find out which films are tipped to win big at this year's oscars. fears are mounting that an inconclusive election this weekend could undermine the euro and set back markets in italy. hans, as we edge closer to that event, polls open sunday and they close on monday. we've seen the two-day sell off. is it related to the outcome here? >> well, i think the italian election has had an impact on market performance for the past few weeks. i guess that markets became much more cautious in investing in the debt market in italy and maybe as well as the debt market in spain, the cause of the potential inflation risk here. now, if we are getting an election result which markets may like, then the very clear majority left and under those circumstances, you
a warhead small enough to fit on a long range missile. the eu secured council called an emergency meeting. chery joins us now from seoul. can you tell us first of all what the general reaction has been there and a lot bit about the impact of the economy. we're watching, for example, the south korea and won take a hit this morning. >> well within not much of a reaction on the kospi. it did end down just about 0.26% here. but i wouldn't say it's a big tumble and it is korean won gained. i think by now investors have learned that north korea related tensions and developments, geopolitical issues like this have had impact on the korean market. so that explains the absence of such strong reaction on the stock market. but the latest that we have on this development is that we have china's reaction to north korea's nuclear tests, as well. china's foreign ministry statement goes that it is china's firm stance to realize nonnuclearization for the korean peninsula and prevent a nuclear proliferation and maintain peace and stability in northeast asia. remember, china is north korea's probably one an

wanted to keep in the eu because they never went into the eurozone, but they are an active member of the eu. she wants to keep them end. >> time is getting a little tight here, so let's go to two questions very quickly right here and then right over here. >> you said that you would enhance economic opportunities in asia, asian members of commerce. >> that is an interesting question. some very senior members of congress, in fact, the senior senator testified -- just died who had tremendous clout, and you're seeing more and more asian members elected, male and female, and i think he will continue to us see that. you know, -- [inaudible question] >> well, you have -- i think there are several -- one who is korean, one korean-american. at think you will see more going forward because you love a lot of asian-americans who are mayors in major cities to lend that think that if the answer is, i think it would be very helpful to have more asian americans as members of congress. and, of course, he had a governor who is now our ambassador to -- our secretary of commerce who is now our ambass
-claude junker says he expects the eu to real a deep on the budget today. juncker said the last of an agreement would be disastrous for the region. julia is in brussels. julia, are we going to get a budget? mr. cameron has said, look, i don't want it frozen, i want it cut. so what's going to happen? >> well, we're moving in the direction of cuts. i think the positive news is that if you compare what we were talking about in november, we've cut around 80 billion euros from the 1 trillion euro target that they were looking at back in november. so we are moving in the right direction, but with regard to the decision today, i think if you've been listening to angela merkel to david cameron himself and francois hollande this week, the indication is that perhaps we shouldn't be as optimistic as jean-claude juncker would have us believe, but someone has to fly the flag for europe and we like our posturing in europe. overall, what rewe looking at? germany, the uk, the nordic european countries are fighting for cuts, real term cuts in this whereas italy and france would rather have it held steady. even
. we have the eu rising starts, the outstanding british film. but in the major categories, clearly people do look to the bafta the way same they would look to the gloelden gloep globes to see how things were going. "argo" is seen by everybody as a pack leader. there is a strange absence there on best director. whoever wins best director will be remembered as having won in the year that the most significant contender wasn't nominated. >> why isn't he nominated? >> who knows. who knows. i think we got it right, but who knows why he wasn't. one reason is because what they've done with the oscars now is increased the best film from five up to ten. now you have i think it's nine nominations this year. of course you're going to get a mismatch because there aren't the same number of films that there were directed. >> mark, good to see you. thanks so much, indeed. >> thanks for coming by. >> always a very good turn out, as well. >> i still think silver linings with a different name would have done so well. >>> anyway, the clearing up is occurring after nemo. what impact will this have on r
a speech. i'd love to know what they're going to say bearing in mind that they're not exactly pro eu parliament. so that will be fascinating, won't it? let's face it, anti-austerity was the theme of this. bearing in mind, we've got 50% of voters coming around to say grillo or berlusconi, we don't want aus tearpy. anyway, the bill fall guy in this election was the prime minister, the technocrat who ran, marto monte. let's hear what he's been saying in the aftermath of these electoral disaster. >> translator: it's still too early to consider any solution, nor does it rest upon me to find one. but right now, i consider it is essential that there's maximum transparency between the political forces because we're all faced with a very serious responsibility. the government must ensure responsibility for the entire country. >> okay. so more analysis. alana fred reeko joins us now. you've had a big meeting today already, loradonna. you shook my hand. lovely. thank you. no one else did today. what did you guys decide is the way forward? >> following the outcome of the italian election, the si
